HOPKINS — Hopkins West Junior High Principal Leanne Kampfe was awarded the brand-new Minnesota Association of IB World Schools (MNIB) Leadership Award on March 12, according to a news release from the school district.

Kampfe’s colleagues surprised her with the award on March 12 with a small ceremony where Jon Peterson, executive director of the MNIB, presented her with the award.

“It’s important that you realize what a gem you have — that you have someone who is considered a leader in the state,” Peterson said in the release.

IB coordinator at West Junior High, Jen Poncelet said Kampfe embodies many of the IB learner profile traits and looks at a situation from multiple angles as a critical thinker, the release says.
